With a statue of Mary McLeod Bethune now representing Florida in the U.S. Capitol’s National Statuary Hall, it’s time to remember all those whose likeness could have been there instead. We won’t call them losers – we’ll call them runners-up. And to be fair, some never had a chance. Here’s why: As far back as 2016, the state asked for nominations for a historical figure to replace Confederate Army Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith. To be eligible, nominees had to be a “citizen of the State of Florida, either by birth or residence.” That meant no Ronald Reagan, Charles Darwin or Robert E. Lee, all of whom received nominations from the public. They also had to be “deceased for 10 years or more, as of January 1, 2017.” That knocked out a slew of nominees turned in by the public. To name a few, chocolate chip cookie pioneer Wally Amos, FSU football coach Bobby Bowden (then still alive), Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, singer Gloria Estefan, adult film performer Riley Reid, and yes, Donald Trump. That would have been interesting. Now on to this week’s Winners & Losers.
